In May of this year, Clowns Without Borders traveled to Sudan to bring fun and laughter to children who have lived through war, poverty and displacement. Using contemporary clowns and circus performances and workshops, CWB taught children new skills and helped pull communities together in celebration.
In 2005, Sudan emerged from a twenty-two year civil war. Today, it is one of the poorest countries in the world, home to 6,000,000 internally displaced people. Over 40% of the population is under the age of fifteen and millions of children live in refugee camps outside of towns and cities.
